Christopher Paolini is the author and creator of the Inheritance cycle. He was born on November 17, 1983, in Southern California, but eventually moved to Paradise Valley, Montana, via Anchorage, Alaska. Christopher was homeschooled by his parents, and started writing at a young age.
His influences are such authors as Raymond Feist, Philip Pullman, Anne McCaffrey, and Ursula Le Guin, as well as classical composers like Mahler, Beethoven, and Wagner. He wrote Eragon after graduating from high school at the age of fifteen, and the book was originally self-published by his parents' company, Paolini International LLC. Later, Christopher landed a three-book deal with Knopf, and Eragon became a bestseller. (more...)
